Some Things that You Should Know Regarding Bipolar Depression

You must understand that bipolar disorder is a kind of condition which affects all types of individuals. The children and adults are being affected by such condition. Such is a fact that you must understand. Those women would suffer the most from such type of depression which is known as bipolar depression disorder.

This is not really strange or far-fetched in any case because even if the women would suffer from the regular bipolar type of depression or depressive disorder, they are going to spend more time depressed than they would do being manic. Not just women are depressive but the men would also get affected by such kind of condition.

The bipolar type of disorder is known as manic depression because this is a mental condition wherein you would interchange often between the phases of mania and depression. If you are suffering from bipolar depression, you won’t be spending as much time being manic as you would spend being depressed.

This kind of depression is one form of disorder and you should understand it is easy to wrongly diagnose as bipolar disorder due to the similarity of such symptoms. Due to such, the doctor should keep you around for a long time when they are going to try to diagnose the condition which you have. It is definitely not flattering to either of you if you would be treated for a wrong thing.

Such bipolar affective disorder is another name for the bipolar disorder or such manic-depressive illness. However, you don’t want to mistake such for bipolar depression disorder. Such is closely related with all of the symptoms of such depressive phase of the bipolar disorder, but very few of the mania.

The monotherapy trials from placebo is actually the gold-standard design in knowing the efficacy when it comes to the treatment of bipolar depression. When such efficacy would be proven as monotherapy, the new compounds can be tested in the adjunctive-medication placebo-controlled trials. Those younger adults, without the established need for such long-term medication can be suitable for the clinical trials needing placebo-controls. Such switch to mania or the hypomania can perhaps be the result of the active treatment for such bipolar depression.

Some medications like the tricyclic antidepressants and the venlafaxine can be more likely to prove switch as compared to the others but the increased rate of the switch can’t be seen until about 10 weeks of treatment. Thus, the 12-week trials against placebo are needed to determine the risk of switch and establish the continuing effects. You should know that careful assessment at 6-8 weeks are required to make sure that the patients who fail to respond won’t continue in the study for the unacceptable periods of time.
